How Palm Springs used UrbanLeap to run 3-quotes to re-design their council conference room

Palm Springs, a city in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California, is known for its hot springs, stylish hotels, golf courses, and spas. The city covers approximately 94 square miles with a population of 44,575. Presently, the city has a council-manager type government, with a five-person city council. The city is considered a full-service city, in that it staffs and manages its own police and fire departments including parks and recreation programs, public library, sewer system, wastewater treatment plant, international airport, and planning and building services.

The Challenge

The City of Palm Springs sought a consultant to plan and design a large conference room to include a new wall covering, conference tables, credenza, cabinetry for electronic equipment, and smart boards. The City’s current process of finding quotes via Google was proving fruitless due to high construction and consultant demand and short supply.

The Impact

The City of Palm Springs used the UrbanLeap platform to find an interior designer by running an informal quote process. In less than 48 hours, they created the request, defined the scope and published the project. The City leveraged the platform to coordinate the site visit and respond to 21 questions from vendors in a seamless fashion. With UrbanLeap technology, 38 unique vendors were approached and the City received 6 quotes!

I was trying to get vendors through google, and all of them answered they were busy, very frustrating! This was a project of high priority to the city council and I’m happy we could use UrbanLeap to get a variety of proposals to satisfy our City Council.
